Dr. Massry Did an Amazing Job!!! - Beverly Hills, CA

In 2013 I had reconstruction surgery for eyelid retraction and to correct a problem I had with closing my eyes when sleeping. This surgery was performed by a reputable oculoplastic surgeon at a highly notable eye center facility. Unfortunately, the surgery left me with disfiguring ectropion. I was much worse than before surgery. For years I was ashamed to go out in public because of they... READ MORE

Do NOT Rush into ANY Kind of Surgery Without Researching, Researching, Researching! -

The reason I wanted a brow lift was to eleviate the sad and angry look I carried around. However, I was left with brows that were elevated too high leaving me with a startled "operated" look.

I had a coronal brow lift in 1989 and an endoscopic brow lift in 1997.

My eyes look sunken and hollow and my eyebrows sit way too high.  Since having the brow lift(s), my hair on top is thinner so a "reverse" brow lift is undesirable. ... READ MORE

Beautiful results! I hope you're still happy! I so want to have some fullness to my face and know I don't want fillers but I have read on here so many negative reviews. So, I'm encouraged to see you had terrific results. READ COMMENT
